As another measure we may check the time to stabilized semi-steady state flow at 30 hrs, when SSS flow occurs according to the previous plots: Looking at this value alone, a square with well in centre of corner sector ( ) or a 4:1 rectangle with well off centre in short direction ( ) appear best. To further investigate the configuration we may take advantage of plots Matthews, Brons and Hazebrook (MBH). MDH plots are created for a range of shapes and configurations, providing the solution to the ( ) function. The function encompasses the full range of time, allowing for a solution to the infinite, transient and semi-steady state flow regimes. To determine the most appropriate configuration the four possible suggestions will be evaluated using the MBH plots to see which configuration models best correspond to the measured pressures in this test. The flowing equation is utilized: () () () () () () The definition of dimensionless pressure is: () With the additional of skin: ( ( )) )( () () Substituting in: ( ( )) )( () Solving for wellbore pressure: () ( ) () This equation will be used to solve for the theoretical wellbore pressure.
